This past December, Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll (more on that name later) welcomed a new baby boy into the world: Bear Blaze Winslet. So when the actress went on Ellen yesterday — for an interview that will air today — Ellen DeGeneres naturally asked how Winslet came up with that amazing name.

“A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear, and I had just always really loved it,” Winslet explained. “He was everyone’s shoulder to cry on, he was a big bear hug, he was just this great figure in my life. And I had just always remembered it.”

Lea Michele opens up about Cory Monteith to Ellen DeGeneres

Lea Michele talked about moving on after the death of her co-star and boyfriend, Cory Monteith, in a Dec. 12 interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The Glee star told DeGeneres that she has chosen to press forward, despite the grief of losing Monteith. “Grief goes with you every day, whatever you’re doing,” she told Ellen. “Whether there’s great moments, when there’s hard moments, so I’d rather be at work with the people that I love who are going through the same.”

Michele continued, “My mom has experienced a lot of loss in her life, and she told me, ‘There is an empowerment that comes with grief. At some point you will find it’s very hard, but you will find it,’ and I think at a certain point you can choose to fall from this or you can rise. That’s what I’m trying to do my best for him, because that’s what he [Cory] would have wanted.”

Michele also discussed her forthcoming debut album Louder, and performed her new single from the record, “Cannonball.”

Simon Cowell talks to Ellen about being a dad: 'I'm actually happier than I've ever been' -- VIDEO

The circumstances of Simon Cowell becoming a dad were a tabloid editor’s dream, but now that the dust has settled, the X Factor and American Idol mastermind told Ellen DeGeneres: “I’m actually happier than I’ve ever been.”

News broke at the end of July that Lauren Silverman, the still-married wife of one of Cowell’s friends, was pregnant with the reality-TV judge’s child. In an interview that will air on Tuesday’s Ellen, Cowell told DeGeneres how he reacted when he got the news.

“Oh my god, it’s exciting, and [also] this is going to be a bit of a nightmare now for the next few weeks,” he said, later adding, “I can’t blame the media, because it was a really juicy story. But there was a lot of stuff that was said about [Silverman] — that she trapped me and that she’s a gold digger — and it’s absolute nonsense. She’s a great girl.”

Check out a three-minute sneak peek of the interview before Tuesday’s show:

'Friends' reunion alert! Matthew Perry has some advice for Jennifer Aniston -- VIDEO

Jennifer Aniston appears on today’s episode of Ellen, but not just as a guest — she’s co-hosting the show. Naturally, this gig carries more pressure than a simple guest appearance… which is why Aniston thought it’d be a good idea to stop by her old Friend Matthew Perry’s house and ask him for advice, since he recently co-hosted alongside DeGeneres himself. (Jen: “You’ve got to give me something to go on!” Matthew: “Don’t say Go On.”)

Unfortunately, the rap session doesn’t go completely as planned. It turns out Aniston and Perry haven’t really stayed in touch since Friends went off the air in 2004… and things get even more awkward when Rachel Jen realizes that Chandler Matthew is sleeping with another one of their former co-stars. (Cue “The One Where Everybody Finds Out.”) Thank you, Ellen DeGeneres — by making this video possible, you’ve done us a great national service.
